Over the next week, we are going to be looking at some of the people involved in this year’s illuminART Show and Sale. We will highlight some of the creative team behind the show, a few of our artists, our musical groups, and our venue. So, tune in each day to learn more about what’s going on at the 2016 illuminART Show.
To begin, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Brandon Trotter, and I am the coordinator for the illuminART Show.
I began my journey with the arts as an actor. After finishing theatre school, I traveled around Western Canada for a few years performing for a number of companies. After receiving a call into ministry, I went back to school for a Theology degree, and have since been working at RockPointe Church as Drama Ministry Coordinator, fusing my love of God and my love of the performing arts.
I am blessed to be married to the most wonderful woman I have known. We have two young boys who keep us busy all the time. When not writing for the church or for myself, I like to read, run, play board games, and brew beer in my kitchen. My passion is to see artists walk along their faith journey and to tell awesome stories through a multitude of media.
Over the winter, I was asked to lead the revival of a previous art show that had been inert for 5 years. We rebranded the event as the illuminART Show and Sale and have been working furiously with a very talented team to bring it all together.
I look forward to seeing all of you on May 14th. It’s going to be a great show!
